ACA, Inc. in Washington
ACA Washington, DC and Country Chapters
ACA’s headquartered offices are Washington-based allowing the organization access to advocate directly with legislators on Capitol Hill on a regular basis. ACA’s Executive Director and Legal Counsel are based in Washington, DC and meet regularly with the members of the Americans Abroad Caucus, Co-chaired by Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and Mick Mulvaney (R-SC). ACA maintains ongoing contacts with key legislative offices such as the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT), House Ways & Means Committee and, Senate Finance Committee, Government Accountability Office (GAO), Treasury and the IRS. These offices regularly reach out to ACA for input on the problems and concerns of the community of Americans overseas. As part of our work, ACA partners with other associations such as the US Vote Foundation and works with other organizations to advance issues. With a dedicated presence in Washington, DC, ACA can better advocate for the 9 million Americans that the US State Department estimates are living and working overseas (US State Department Chart of Statistics).
ACA´s Country Chapters
In addition to ACA’s Washington headquarters, ACA maintains two Country Chapters; one based in Geneva, Switzerland and another in London, England. Country Chapters serve to informally bring together Americans living overseas who want to share their experiences, issues and concerns and to make these issues known to ACA for policy formulation purposes. Chapters hold informal “get-together” meetings, networking events and informal events as well as host Town Hall Evenings where practical information on topics of interest to the community are presented. Please contact ACA at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the Swiss and UK Chapters. Chapters are a way for Americans to gather in an informal environment and share their concerns and issues with the management of ACA.
